Monday, February 27, 2006 - GSAC Game #20
Hope International 80, FPU 77 (Overtime)

Box score

Fullerton - The Sunbirds closed their season with a narrow overtime loss in Fullerton tonight.

Jasmine Nault (19 points), Carly Andrews (16) and Malerie Rodrigues (22) combined for 57 points to lead the host Hope International University Royals to the 80-77 Golden State Athletic Conference win.

The Sunbirds trailed by a dozen early in the first half, but rallied to tie the score 43-43 at the half.

It was a similar story in the second half. FPU trailed by as many as 12 points, but rallied to take a two point lead in the final minute. The Royals forced overtime with a last second shot.

"It was frustrating," said FPU head coach Jim Hall. "We played well enough to win. But we made little mistakes at crucial times and it cost us."

Senior Denise Fast led the Sunbirds with 23 points, eight rebounds and three assists. Kari Cox scored 13 points and also pulled down eight rebounds. Amanda Kamps scored 11 points and Lindsey Burnett added 10.

Nault led all players with 15 rebounds to complete the double-double.

The Sunbirds end their season with an 8-21 overall mark, including a 4-16 record in GSAC play.

The Royals (18-12, 10-10) advance to the GSAC postseason as the No. 6 seed and will travel to Azusa to face No. 3 Azusa Pacific on Wednesday, March 1.
